Though known for his paintings, 19th-century French artist Edgar Degas produced a number of rarely seen monotypes—a printmaking technique in which works are created by drawing or painting on a nonabsorbent surface, then transferring it to paper by pressing the two together. MoMA presents the first monographic exhibition of the artist, displaying nearly 130 of his monotypes and approximately 50 related works, like paintings, drawings, prints and sketches.
